1. How long will the session last?
Around an hour! No longer, as your little one (or dad) will get super grumpy. Newborn sessions tend to last a little longer to make time for feeding and cuddles.
2. What if little Johnny won’t cooperate?
This is a common concern, and it’s not one you have to worry about. My home studio has a calming and relaxed atmosphere and is set up as homely as possible to make your little one feel at ease. I have plenty of beautiful toys and games for us to play with to set them as ease. No matter how spirited or soulful your child is I have magic tricks to get the best images of them, even if they have a finger up their nose!
3. I hate the way I look in photos!
We all have body issues of some sort, too fat, too thin, chubby armpits (yes that’s a thing), but thats ok, I promise I will make you look and feel fabulous in front of the camera, and take beautiful natural photos without making you feel awkward! You are a busy supermum, and you deserve to look and feel amazing. 20 years from now when your kids are looking back at the very few images of you and them together you will so grateful!
4. What if my husband is grumpy?
You have possibly interrupted his golf day or Liverpool vs Man United so that’s understandable. I will have the good coffee on the go and ready for him!
5 What should I wear?
If you are anything like me, I never have anything to wear when it’s time to go out (even though there is 39857934857 pieces of clothing in my wardrobe) Neutral colours work best, whites, creams, beige, dusty pink. Jeans and a neutral top always works well. I have plenty of beautiful outfits in the studio, if you need an outfit please let me know sizing and I will have something ready for you. I ask all kids to take off their shoes before the session, so don’t go buying expensive shoes. I love to see baby/kids feet and toes in photos. Make sure everybody’s feet are nice and clean with no chipped nail polish.
Here are some links to help you with what to wear.
6. What if I hate the photographs?
You won’t! But for some reason if you do (you won’t) I will refund every last penny.
7. Granny is paying, can she come?
No, sorry, I am sure Granny is super awesome, but my studio is small, so only 2 adults please.
8. I am only looking for Digitals, is that ok?
Of course, I offer lots of beautiful products and albums, but if thats not your thing then you get the digital only option.
9. Are your viewing appointments high sale orientated?
Absolutely not! Your viewing appointment is just an opportunity to view your beautiful images. You don’t have to buy a thing!
10. Where do I go?
My Address is
Pentre Coed House, Maesbury SY10 8HB. The postcode does not take you any where near to the house, so don’t bother putting it in your sat nav. If you type ‘Janine Speake Photography’ into google maps it will take you straight here.
Hopefully that answers all your questions. If you have any other questions, you can message me here
